NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman will be among the talent competing for a Mirrorball Trophy in ABC’s upcoming all-athlete version of “Dancing with the Stars.”

The cast also includes ice skating villain Tanya Harding and Notre Dame women’s basketball national championship hero Arike Ogunbowale, whose game-winner at the buzzer over the mighty UConn Huskies earned Notre Dame a spot in the final at the NCAA Division I women’s basketball tournament.

Ogunbowale managed to eclipse the feat with another buzzer beater with just 0.1 seconds left to win the national championship, 17 years after the school’s first women’s title.
